What is an EcoSmart Electrician?
NECA, which represents electrical contractors, has initiated the EcoSmart Electricians industry training in energy efficient products, technology and installations. This means local electricians, if they have achieved the relevant accreditation by successfully completing the EcoSmart Electricians training, can provide advice and assistance to householders on the best and simplest ways to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
It might be as simple as changing light globes to more energy efficient ones, (remembering not all light fittings are compatible with energy saving light globes), or advising on, and installing, the most efficient type of split system air conditioner. Smith & Smith Electrical Services, as EcoSmart Electricians, can advise you on the options.

Are you helping to protect our environment?
You're probably already recycling your household waste and maybe you've installed water-saving devices around the home, or even a rainwater tank to supplement your mains water usage. You might also be cycling or walking to work instead of driving your car, to play your part in helping the environment.
But there is more we can all do around the home to reduce our negative effect on the environment, by limiting our energy consumption and the greenhouse gases we create.
Apart from switching off lights when they are not needed, most people have little idea how to go about saving energy at home. That's where trained EcoSmart Electricians can help.

When would you use an EcoSmart electrician?
Apart from all the usual services electricians provide, a trained and accredited EcoSmart Electrician can also offer advice on:
  • The best energy efficient technologies including lighting, heating, air conditioning and solar, and which ones can best suit your home and budget.
  • Your electrical installation, or the appliances you are using, to ensure they are environmentally friendly.
  • The options available, to arm you with knowledge and help you make the right decisions.

Use an EcoSmart Electrician when you are:
  • Undertaking a renovation or building a new home.
  • Buying a "big ticket" item such as a new air conditioner, heating unit or solar generation unit.
  • Looking for advice on how to be energy efficient in the home.
  • Considering changing over to energy efficient products in stages, when you can afford it.
  • In need of urgent electrical repairs and advice on the best options.

Are environmentally friendly options more expensive?
A trained EcoSmart Electrician can still continue to offer all the usual electrical services you've come to expect, but can also offer you much more.
Investing more now in energy efficient products and services is a definite saving for the future. You will save power and therefore save money in the long term. And, it's worth it because you'll be doing even more to help protect the environment.
